Choosing a locker for Dana 20

I've decided to keep the Dana 20 in my Javelin. Getting 1 piece axles in from Moser. Wondering what everybody's using for a locker? Pros and cons. Anyone using a Powertrax Lock-right? Appreciate reply's.

Never used a powertrax in a car, I have in a Jeep.  They are noisy when turning, you'll hear it clicking every time you turn a corner.  They will also jerk the car side/side if you apply power before both sides are locked.  They are definitely the cheapest option, but not the smoothest.  There are other similar "lunchbox" lockers like the Aussie, Spartan, Monkey Grip.  These go in the factory open carrier, and are probably limited to under 400 HP with sticky tires.  If you swap out the carrier, there are quieter and more durable units out there like the Eaton, ARB, OX.  Anything that will fit a 76-85 Jeep CJ will fit your car.
